's take a listen to president obama in his own words back in february of 2009 talking about iraq. [video clip] >> a candidate for president, i made clear a time line 16 months to carry out the drug them while pledging to consult closely with our military commanders upon taking office to ensure that we preserve the gains we have made and to protect our troops. these consultations are now complete. i have chosen a time line that will remove our combat brigades over the next 18 months. let me say this as plainly as i can -- by august 31, 2010, our combat mission in iraq will end. host: that as president obama back in february, 2009. guest: that is a promise kept this was the centerpiece of his campaign. you can go back to 2003 with his opposition to the war. a promise that week raided was barack obama will work with military commanders on the ground in iraq to end the war safely and responsibly within 16 months and we raided that a promise kept in 2010 as the last combat troops were removed from iraq. this gets back to what we were talking about about presidential power. there were things t
for sort of a mini correction? >> well, we talked about last year that we had uncertainties to overcome, whether -- first, it was whether obama care was going to be the law of the land, then who our president was going to be, and then last piece in the puzzle, which unfortunately is going to take a little while to figure out is the fiscal cliff because the next component of it is going to be the debt ceiling. so i mean it is going to create some uncertainty. if we get into real tension negotiations, you know, it could be ugly again, and i don't see a big huge drop, but we could see a lot more volatility. liz: dan is tuning out anyway because he has a whole bunch of picks that he hopes will have the same type of return that he had for six months on genesse wyoming. your first pick is down 10% over the past year, it's an aerospace pick. >> one of my best analysts did great work on this. it's been a holding on us. owned more and owned less. great longer term holding. they've hit some speed bumps, but we feel comfortable as they're in a good position as the aerospace area continues to grow.
this. and the europeans. >> rose: i thank you for taking time to come talk with us about this. >> thanks so much, charlie, pleasure. >> just to put this into the context not just of africa but of the broader fight against al qaeda, because president obama has often said that al qaeda is on its way to defeat and it's probably true that the central al qaeda ornization which was one headed by osama bin laden and headquartered in pakistan probably matter a lot less now than a few years ago but what you have seen is that as we pit al qaeda in the core area in afghanistan and pakistan it splintered outward and moved outward. and now are you seeing, you know, like a virus trying to find a body in which it can find a weak host. it's moving out and becoming more powerful in places like yemen, somalia, libya, now mali. so it's moving further and further a field and there are so many weak states because this is where terrorists te rt. they take root in failed states there are so many failed states in africa it is not just mali there are a lot of other places and now increasingly in north
. >> and president obama being sworn in this year on martin luther king day, the significance of that? >> a lot of tremendous symbolism here. first of all he's using martin luther king's bible and the lincoln bible. we're talking about lincoln with the movie. this is the 150th anniversary of the emancipation proclamation. there is a monument to dr. king. 50 years after "i have a dream" there is a memorial to this man. this story of race slavery, civil rights and involvement in our history is so important. i think it's really significant to have all these symbols together on this very significant day. >> president barack obama is the 44th american president. we have had 20 two-term presidents. how have two-term presidents fathered? >> recently not so well if we think about recent controversies, they tend to come in the second term. i don't know if that's just a coincidence. bill clinton's impeachment, of course. george bush had a lot of his presidency starting to unravel in the second term. richard nixon, watergate in the second term. for ronald reagan iran contra. it may be th
